Tako Tuesdays: Bold Statements

New, 172 comments

Common opinions make me break out in hives.

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

I'm so sick and tired of you god damn readers agreeing with me.

Multiple articles over the last couple months. All of them, completely free of outrage and vitriol.

Makes me sick.

I miss the old days, where I'd write 1000 words on some bullshit like David Hasselhoff or Pabst Blue Ribbon, and everyone would tear me a new one telling me how I was wrong about everything and that my parents hate me. Then I grew up, started writing like a real adult pseudo-journalist, and everything went quiet.

It feels so lonely around these parts.

Sounds like it's time for a summertime edition of BOLD STATEMENTS!

For those who don't know how this works, I'm going to make a series of bold statements, all of which I completely believe in. These are my opinions, and you're wrong for disagreeing with me. But that doesn't mean you can't try. In the comments. Let's get it to 300 or 400 comments people. Burn this mother fucker. Burn it good.

BOLD STATEMENTS

  • I've had Burgerville. More than once. Not impressed.

Do your worst, commentariat.
